Sharon Osbourne just revealed that she had a psychiatric breakdown and was hospitalized in a mental health facility last year.
During the season premiere of The Talk, the 63-year-old host explained that in May of 2015 she suffered from mental health issues that left her unable to speak or comprehend anything.
“I had a complete and utter breakdown. I woke up in Cedars Sinai hospital and probably for three days, I knew nothing,” she admitted.
Sharon added, “My brain just shut down on me. My brain just totally fused, and I couldn’t cope with anything. My family put me into a facility, and in this facility, they diagnose you, there’s therapists, there’s psychiatrists and you do a lot of group therapy.”
She went on to explain that her breakdown was triggered by overworking herself but she now wants her experience to help someone else.
“I feel now that I have got a grip on the problem that I have and I’m in control. It doesn’t control me…And if I can help somebody else along the way, I would feel great to give whatever advice to help somebody else…If you have a bad leg, you tell everybody you have a bad leg. I just have a bad head,” Sharon said.
“They’re working on it,” the couple’s son Jack recently told SiriusXM. “You know, they’re trying to rein it in. They’ve been together for so long and this isn’t their first rodeo.”
He added, “Hey, listen, there’s no perfect marriage in this world. I mean, look, we’ve got two presidential candidates, one’s on his third marriage and, well, we know what happened with the Clintons, so need we say any more?”

“He’s been going [to] outpatient for sex addiction for the last three months and after the tour … he goes into inpatient for three months,” she said. “He’s working at it. It’s hard because it affects the whole family and it’s quite embarrassing. … I’m proud that he’s come out and admitted it, finally,” Sharon said on The Talk on Wednesday (August 3).
Sharon still has a sense of humor, though. “[He] should call Tiger Woods for some advice.”
